Whitbread to launch Bar + Block Steakhouse in Nottingham

Whitbread is set to launch its fifth Bar + Block Steakhouse following the successful roll-out of four sites in Birmingham, London, Whiteley and Bath. On 17 June, the new steak-focussed all-day casual dining restaurant will open its latest site in Nottingham city centre, in the Chapel Quarter.

Bar + Block Nottingham will be a 3861-square foot, 100 cover informal steakhouse serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, with an emphasis on delivering high quality steaks at affordable prices.

Signature dishes include rotating steak specials from the Butcher’s Block, as well as The Mighty Block Burger – an eight-ounce hand-ground beef patty with cheese sauce, smoked beef brisket, crispy onions, pickles, cucumber, lettuce, tomato and fiery black sauce.

Bar + Block will also offer an extensive drinks range, with a focus on craft beers and ciders, innovative cocktails and a specially curated wine list.

The modern design inspired by the theatre of food and drink, includes an open kitchen and feature bar with copper detailing complemented by reclaimed wood, high quality fabrics, comfy seating and warm lighting. Decorative finishing touches include the brand’s signature neon cow, wall calligraphy detailing the brand story alongside colourful contemporary artwork.

Nathalie Pomroy, Chief Marketing Officer for Whitbread Restaurants, commented, “We’re very excited to launch our fifth Bar + Block Steakhouse in Nottingham to complement our wider brand growth strategy.

'Following the success in Birmingham, London, Whiteley and most recently Bath, we’re confident that our offer will be a welcome addition to Nottingham’s vibrant and diverse food and drink scene.”
